Continuing on the fine subject of earmarks and deficit spending and health reform, a simple internet search led me to EarmarkWatch.org, and a summary of Representative Dennis Rehberg’s earmark requests just from FY2008 House and Senate Labor-HHS-Education bills and the 2008 House Defense Bill.

How much did our very own drunken sailor/deficit peacock ask for? $2,000,000.

What was the $2,000,000 for? Exclusively, the money was for health care-oriented grants.

It’s another glaring example of the hypocrisy that is Dennis Rehberg – he saddles up to tea baggers by shouting down wheelchair-bound health reform supporters – the same tea baggers that are formed out of new found hatred for deficit spending.

Did they know as they hero-worshiped deficit peacock Rehberg down there in Hamilton Montana that surely sunny day that he had already earmarked $2,000,000 for health care throughout Montana?

Rehberg is what he is. Conservatives and their tea partying offsprings should not be fooled to think that he’s fiscally conservative by any means.

Something to mull over – check this chart out and consider that Rehberg took office January 1, 2001:

Rehberg might be Republican, but fiscally conservative he is not.
